Last night’s Endeavour on ITV was very enjoyable. It dealt with the danger of police and council official corruption and showed the dangers police officers face each day fighting corruption.

A whole tower block collapsed because corrupt council officials allowed a builder to use inferiod concrete.

The attempts to bribe police to overlook it went to an extreme length and ended in people getting shot.

I just love a police officer who fights corruption.

The later ‘Law and Order UK’ again dealt with the difficulty of prosecuting a drug smuggling drug dealer and get the evidence needed. A man made a girl believe that he loved her and made her swallow 70 condoms filled with drugs, which killed her when one of them burst.

There was however no direct hard evidence to link the drug dealer to the mule.

But then CPS was able to prosecute him for tax fraud as he laundered the money through the accounts of his dead wife and didn’t pay tax on millions of pounds of income. That only got him a 2 year sentence but it destroyed his way of life.

I have never gotten involved in anything to do with drugs and I would strongly encourage all my  readers to stay well clear of them. The film showed the danger young people are in when they get sucked in by exploiting drug dealers who make them believe that they are loved if they only carry the drugs in their stomach.

It is a nightmare for any parent to see teenage children getting involved with partners who do not have their best interest at heart but then also realising that the children themselves are no longer interest in seeking advice from the parent. It seems to be an emotional problem that is very hard to solve in today’s free society, whereby parents cannot force their growing teenagers to do more than attend compulsory school lessons.

A lot of the morals are shown in older productions, which unfortunately do not have current technology present and often include smoking and a lot of alcohol.
